Know About It
Lgp Qua Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Bullets flyin' every day,
Kids gettin' hit, it's blood up in the streets
I'm from a place where you don't
Grind, nine out of ten of you ain't gon' eat
Young bull got bullied, ninth grade, every day he got teased
Next day he strapped up,
Seen the boy who did it then the trigger squeezed
All I see is dead bodies,
Bullets on the ground, it left me traumatized
I done seen close friends turn a bunch of jokes into a homicide
I done seen kids steal from they own parents for that dollar sign
Doctor Martin Luther King,
The man that had a dream, is who I idolize (rest in peace)
I was broke, I never liked that
I'm just here to enlighten
I know some youngins got they life took
Before they got their driver's liscence
I'm just tryna make it out the hood
'Cause if I don't then I'ma die in it
How you sayin' you my day one
But do some crafty shit the next minute
Summer time, that's when the murder happen
Check the body count 'cause I can't even count it
Classrooms lookin' empty, bunch of street corners lookin' overcrowded
Shorty had a bright future,
Started using drugs and turned into a zombie
I know some niggas made the news because
They played the block and tried to make a profit

Every time they on the block,
All them niggas, they just tryna get paid
They just tryna get paid
Tell me nigga what you know about it?
Every time they in the whip switchin' lanes they just tryna get paid
They just tryna get paid
Tell me nigga what you know about it?
Voice of the youth so I'm talkin' for the youth
Nigga 'cause I know about
Voice of the streets so I'm talkin' for the streets
Nigga 'cause I know about
Every time they in the whip switchin' lanes they just tryna get paid
They just tryna get paid
Tell me nigga what you know about it?

I ain't got no time to chill and relax
I ain't got no time to sit on my ass
Came home and then I jumped in my bag
Now it's time to keep my foot on the gas
Always gotta take the good with the bad
Work hard then the money come fast
You ain't real because I see how you act
I remember I was trappin' right up on the corner, tryna get a bag
Jobs wasn't gettin' back, cops hopped out and then I got bagged
I done seen niggas switch, left they boys starvin' while they got fed
Niggas say they do the time but when
They get grabbed they write a paragraph
This shit I do not understand
These youngins stay goin' to war
I'm speakin' for the youth, I know just how they feel
And when you see an opp, you catch him right in traffic
But he got a son, you thinkin' should you kill him?
Or I switch it up and talk about the cops
And how they killin' every nigga with a hoodie
Youngins in the kitchen whippin' whippin' whippin'
Little girls out here fuckin' for attention
Lil niggas ain't goin' to school, they only goin' where the murder at
I know a girl who threw her life
Away, now she fuckin' for some percocets
Early bird get the worm first, niggas broke because they overslept
That young bull got his life took
Because the opposition had a longer clip

Every time they on the block,
All them niggas, they just tryna get paid
They just tryna get paid
Tell me nigga what you know about it?
Every time they in the whip switchin' lanes they just tryna get paid
They just tryna get paid
Tell me nigga what you know about it?
Voice of the youth so I'm talkin' for the youth
Nigga 'cause I know about
Voice of the streets so I'm talkin' for the streets
Nigga 'cause I know about
Every time they in the whip switchin' lanes they just tryna get paid
They just tryna get paid
Tell me nigga what you know about it?
Every time they on the block,
All them niggas, they just tryna get paid
They just tryna get paid
Tell me nigga what you know about it?
Every time they in the whip switchin' lanes they just tryna get paid
They just tryna get paid
Tell me nigga what you know about it?
Voice of the youth so I'm talkin' for the youth
Nigga 'cause I know about
Voice of the streets so I'm talkin' for the streets
Nigga 'cause I know about
Every time they in the whip switchin' lanes they just tryna get paid




They just tryna get paid
Tell me nigga what you know about it

Overall Meaning
